    Overall 7/10

    One of the best Transformers characters period gets a good if not great figure.

    Smaller than you would expect especially when placed next to Cyclonus, Scourge contains lots of nice detailing and an awesome if not overly complicated arm transformation which will guarantee many a child breaks it into a million pieces :) 

    It has a fantastic head sculpt and some really great touches like the wing storage for the weapons and the pinky red fingers just like he has in the cartoon, its also a nice bonus he can hold Nightstick seeing as the gun doesnt transform ( it does split up and form 2 guns for duel wield).

    The bomber mode (pics coming later) is cool and a nice update on the space jet / WTF is that mode he had in G1 if a little bland on the colour front, it does have landing gear but is too heavy in the rear which means it tips backwards.

    Last but not least check out the wings, many an early picture showed some horrendous transformations for this part making people think it was a backpack / kibble feast, the good news that it has a neat transformation where they can fold in on themselves then pivot down on a hinge to form his G1 style wings, there is no need to unfold the storage lids to do this.

    He doesn't look any bigger than the 6" titanium so I'll probably just stick with that one - at least you made the wings look much better!

    It's a shame that he is so short, but he does still look very cool.

    Scourge isn't short... Cyclonus is tall.

    He needs Fracas. But that's all he needs.

    Pretty harsh review for such a great looking figure. As for height, Scourge has always been shorter than Cyclonus. No big deal there.

    Any chance of getting a comparison shot with Thunderwing? I think that will give a good sense of just how vertically challenged the Tracker really is. Still looks like a very faithfull representation of one of my most favorite characters and I can't wait to pick up four of these guys.

    I was just wanting to see more pics of this guy. Good timing!

    I think the question isn't if you should get it.... but how much. At least for me. :D 

    There is a United Fracas. But it is a PCC Mini-Con that is extremely hard to get if you don't live in Japan.

    I would still love to see the robot mode with the wings fully open like that, if you can.

    Looks like he has RTS Tracks-esque stubbiness.

    What is it with the deluxes who are not physically well proportioned height wise? It's like they have travelocity Gnome-like dwarf-ism.

    Too bad about the height, but that wing transformation has me sold. More so than I already was. I want to grab up three of this guy for sweeps, and have the titanium be scourge himself. I don't want to chance that hasbro makes some random repaint character out of this instead of a sweep repaint.

    I guess I don't understand all the gripe about his height. Cyclonus was always tall in the cartoon. Heck, he's one of the biggest (if not the biggest) Deluxe we have had. Scourge shouldn't be towering over him or Galvatron.

    1. Did that guy really quote himself in his own signature? *rolls eyes*
    2. He doesn't need Fracas. He was just an extra added later, it's not an essential part of Scourge's character.
    3. Sweep repaints would be dumb because they'd really have to change the colors on them to be able to sell the figure again and Sweeps that don't look like Scourge are not Sweeps. See the fail that is the Botcon Sweeps. I'm going to buy 3 Hasbro Scourges to add to my United Scourge.
